Here are some more things people wanted to share about Bend Preschool

This is a wonderful facility that my family and I have used and grown with for close to 9 years now with all 4 of our boys. I consider Ruth and Russ family and their staff is equally lovely. I would highly recommend the Crawmers for child care.

I just want to let EVERYONE know how much I love Bend Preschool. My baby girl has been there since November of 2013 and I’ve got to know a handful of their staff, all of which are quite AMAZING!   The Crawmers have shown me endless love and care for my baby girl ruby, provide her with equal and phenomenal attention and they are always friendly to my husband and I. My standards for childcare are extremely high since knowing first hand what perfect childcare is like!!!! We all couldn’t be happier!!!!!!!!!

Ethan has blossomed since attending Bend Preschool. You folks have done an outstanding job with Ethan, Miss Dakota and Miss Danielle are just standout teachers with huge hearts. Lil Man says he ‘loves Dem Hunnies to Def’ LOL!

It has been a true blessing having your help in Ethan’s education. He will miss all of you and his teachers dearly… in Ethan’s own words, ‘You are wock stars!'”

Hi there….I can’t sum it up very easily what being at the Crawmer’s has done for our lives as a whole.  There are short cuts to life and I will say that there aren’t any that get taken here!  We have 2 children in their care.  We started 3 years ago and will stay there… Read more

Hi there….I can’t sum it up very easily what being at the Crawmer’s has done for our lives as a whole.  There are short cuts to life and I will say that there aren’t any that get taken here!  We have 2 children in their care.  We started 3 years ago and will stay there until they kick us out for the kids being too old 🙂

I have so many good things to say from all these years and situations but the most recent is:  My daughter is what i consider a “strong willed child”.  Our 6 year old son, not so much and crumbles at a look from daddy or mama.  She is tough and tender at teh same time.  Finding that balance after moving up from 2’s school into preschool has been a challenge.  But because of the dedication, after work/school meetings at Starbucks with Russ, Ruth and both teachers and the persistence, patience and love we all now see a HUGE change in her and absolutely LOVE getting the “good day” report from the teachers.  Beau and Asagi give daily reports and have assited us as parents in a “reward/consequence” system for their behavior at school.  My daughter is a different person now and we are all working as A TEAM to see the beauty of her spirit rather than squash her or give up.  This is a life changing experience and i will never forget the hard work, tears (literally) and pure love that has been poured into our family during a very difficutl transition time.  As a mother I was waiting to hear “Im sorry, we cant help you any further and not sure what to do with your daughter”…but instead I heard “what can we do as a team to see her succeed”.  WOW, completely awesome.

Let me know if you have ANY specific questions….I am available to tell more awesome stories as I have 2 there and have been there for 3 years now.

Hi Ruth and Russ, A big thank you for the follow up on Benjamin’s progress.  We are always curious to know how things are going and now we have some great feedback!  Know that it’s very comforting to us to know that he’s with caregivers like you that are truly concerned about this development and… Read more

Hi Ruth and Russ, A big thank you for the follow up on Benjamin’s progress.  We are always curious to know how things are going and now we have some great feedback!  Know that it’s very comforting to us to know that he’s with caregivers like you that are truly concerned about this development and well being.  Even though we don’t say it often enough, please know that we’re proud to be associated with you two.

Thank you for taking the time and effort in helping us resolve Olivia sleep issues.  You are a very talented lady and don’t ever compare yourself to those day care centers.  You could run rings around them!  You also should consider, someday writing a childcare book – you are as much of an expert than… Read more

Thank you for taking the time and effort in helping us resolve Olivia sleep issues.  You are a very talented lady and don’t ever compare yourself to those day care centers.  You could run rings around them!  You also should consider, someday writing a childcare book – you are as much of an expert than anybody.

I would say that, with your help and support, it took about five or six days to train Cameron.  Sure, we still have accidents now and then and , sure, we still have some work to do ahead of us, but I am so glad to have gone through this developmental milestone with you as… Read more

I would say that, with your help and support, it took about five or six days to train Cameron.  Sure, we still have accidents now and then and , sure, we still have some work to do ahead of us, but I am so glad to have gone through this developmental milestone with you as our, um, Tour Guides.  Thank you again for your enthusiasm and encouragement.  (And please make yourself available when Cameron goes on his first sleep over, loses his first tooth, and learns to drive.  I may need some more support and encouragement then.)

I was very nervous when I needed to find new daycare for my daughter, Ula.  At almost two, she was ready for preschool, but it was hard to find a quality preschool that would take a non-potty trained two year old.  I felt comfortable from the moment that I walked into Ruth and Russ’s home… Read more

I was very nervous when I needed to find new daycare for my daughter, Ula.  At almost two, she was ready for preschool, but it was hard to find a quality preschool that would take a non-potty trained two year old.  I felt comfortable from the moment that I walked into Ruth and Russ’s home and Ula loved playing so much that I had a hard time getting her to leave.  Since then Ula says, “school is cool” and loves going to school.  She used to cry on the drive to daycare, but she is happy to get in the car now!  It’s very important to me that Ula is in a learning environment, and Bend Preschool is set up to make learning fun.  Ula was potty trained soon after starting there!  Ula talks about Marshall (Ruth and Russ’s son) all the time, so I know she is making friends there.  I wouldn’t have Ula go anywhere else.  I highly recommend Bend Preschool for children of any age.

Jack keeps raving about something you guys have for lunch–“chicken noona” (sp?). Is there any way that I could get the recipe?? He says it’s the best food ever…and you know how picky he is so that means a lot! Way to go for finding something Jack likes!

I don’t even know where to start!  First of all Tuck is so smart; when I see him play with other kids his age that don’t go to Bend Preschool I am so impressed by how advanced he is!  I totally attribute a large portion of that to the Crawmer’s.  Secondly I feel like the teachers actually love my child.  They seem to care about him and be invested in his learning.  Third, I love that is not ‘daycare’ it is school and he is actually learning something.  At least once a week he surprises us by knowing something that we had no idea he knew.

We are so incredibly happy that we chose Bend Preschool!!!  It was the first place we looked at and it set the bar really high for everywhere else. We are happy, our child is happy, and social and growing and learning.  I can’t say enough about how happy we are with our choice.

The ‘family’ feeling at the Crawmer’s is one of the things that make it a truly special place.  It only takes a few minutes at one of the schools to see that the teachers and parents feel like family as much as the kids do.  The Crawmer family and the teachers are very accessible and will go out of their way to make themselves available to talk with parents about any questions or concerns – even about issues parents may have at home that don’t directly affect school.  This level of support was completely unexpected from a preschool, but it has been so helpful, especially during times like potty-training!
